Description

This charming sterling silver Luckenbooth brooch shows a historical symbol of Scotland. The name comes from the luckenbooths of Edinburgh where jewellery and trinkets used to be sold, including this type of brooch. Luckenbooth is a Scots word for a lockable stall or workshop. The Edinburgh booths were situated on the Royal Mile near St Giles Cathedral. They were the city’s first permanent shops, going back to the 15th century, and initially housing mainly silversmiths and goldsmiths. The luckenbooth brooch is a traditional Scottish love token often given as a betrothal or wedding brooch. It might be worn by a nursing mother as a charm to help her milk flow, and/or be pinned to a baby’s clothing to protect it from harm. It was known as a witch-brooch by people using it to save children from the evil eye.
